Tackling inequalities through youth empowerment

Brainstorming lab
Tuesday, June 18, 2019
17:00 to 18:15

Young people, as a driving force behind some of the most important development issues, are key actors in bringing new ideas and solutions to pressing problems due to their future-oriented perspective. However, their involvement and participation in the economic, political and social aspects of development are often limited. Private sector and young civil society representatives will focus on four topics – access to credit, inequalities in the labour market, peer-to-peer training and mobility. They will engage the audience to discuss youth’s active and important role in sustainable development and develop recommendations on how to increase and empower young people’s involvement in the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
